Realmente Bella: Señorita Panamá 2009 (I)

According to Wikipedia, the traditional Señorita Panamá pageant changed its name to Realmente Bella and was shown in a reality show format in 2008. 10 girls lived together in a hotel and each week one of them was dismissed. The winner competed at the Miss Universe 2008 contest in Vietnam. The winner in 2008 was a goddess beauty Carolina Dementiev.

In 2009, the reality show will take place again, electing winners for Miss Universe and Miss World. 25 girls will be chosen and then cut to 10, who will live together during six weeks. Four will reach the final and two of them will be crowned.

Miss Peru Universo 2009

There is no doubt that Venezuela and Colombia are the strongest South American countries in the pageant world.

As for Chile, Peru and Brazil, they often send stunning beauties to different pageants. Most of their contestants are above average and it's interesting to follow their national pageants every year.

For Miss Peru Universo 2009, the winner is Karen Schwarz, 24 years old, a model representing the state of Amazonas!

Karen Schwarz is Peruvian-born American with Gerrman roots. She stands 178cm and will represent her lovely country in the Miss Universe 2009.

Wonderful long legs

The crowning moment of Miss Peru Universo 2009

Personally, I like Karen!

I hope she will make the cut cos' she has a killer body. Her personality is vibrant with a very sweet smile on her face, besides, she has positive attitude towards the pageant and has that unique model looks that Miss Universe Organization is looking for! Her face is not perfect but that is what makes her features so unique!
